Earlier this year, BizAsiaLive.com had reported that Hrithik Roshan and director Siddharth Anand were in talks to do another film together. Not a lot was said back then, but now details have emerged that they will be working on an action film titled ‘Fighter’.
Reported on Box Office Worldwide, Anand had pitched the idea to Roshan when they were shooting for ‘War’ (2019) and has since developed the script during the lockdown period. A source revealed, “Sid had narrated this idea of making a big scale action thriller against the backdrop of “FIGHTER JETS” while shooting for War, and Hrithik had loved the basic premise back then. With free time in lockdown, Sid worked on developing it further and narrated it to Hrithik recently, who is all charged up to explore this space. If you were bowled over Hrithik’s presentation in War, be assured, it’s Hrithik in a never seen before larger than life avatar here in this aerial action thriller.”
The film is slated to go on the floors in early 2022 and will release later that year, as Anand is currently tied up with shooting for Shah Rukh Khan’s next, ‘Pathan’, “Sidharth Anand recently started shooting for Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai, and the director will be completely immersed in this film till Diwali 2021 weekend. Right after the release of Pathan, he will jump onto directing Fighter for Hrithik Roshan,” added the source.
